Honestly though? Don’t go to a trainer for “weight loss”.
Hear me out on this one.
You shouldn’t go to a trainer to “lose weight”. You should go to a trainer to learn how to train safely & effectively, and to fuel appropriately for best results.
If you’re starting from a more excessive weight and you learn to train effectively and fuel for results, weight will come off in the process, and it won’t be from just cutting carbs or cutting calories lower and lower and lower while running yourself into the ground trying to burn more and more and more of them.
If you’re already an active person participating in training &/or sports, you may need a more effective training strategy than what you have now, and you definitely need an appropriate fueling strategy rather than a “weight loss diet” type of approach.
I’m happy to train people of any size if they’re enthusiastic about turning up on time and making their best effort as well as following their training program for the rest of the week outside of PT sessions. However, if you require good results for your efforts it is essential that you also do the nutrition component of the program, whether you care about losing weight or not.
Therefore; for the brand new people I recommend you get started with my online Test Drive program for two weeks, just to get a good feel for this approach and to be sure it is the right one for you before you invest in an ongoing, custom strategy.
Don’t forget, it’s Flexible Dieting:
It’s not “a diet”. It is simply getting organised in advance to meet some appropriate fueling targets, from the foods of your choice. Ideally including more of the nutritious choices, but absolutely nothing is off limits unless you’re already avoiding it on medical grounds.
Included in the online Test Drive program.
- Simple set of IIFYM guidelines suitable to someone new to training.
- Two introductory resistance training routines suitable for anyone looking to get started in the gym, with instructional videos of all exercises.
